COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle;
Helles and Pilsner combine the pale, crisp body of Pils with the gentle hop profile of Helles. Its pale gold, refined, elegant and dry. Soft biscuity malt, a light lemony, peppery hop character and the sort of bitterness which quenches and never overpowers. Matured for a long time in tank, its how a great lager should taste.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, - AUG 29, 2012
On tap @ Craft Beer Co. London. Crystal clear golden in color and it has a small light lacing white lager-head. Mild malty on the aroma, some clear bready tones here also, and hints of toilet water. Oh, fresh and refreshing flavors. It has a average small prickling carbonation level and a light oily to watery mouthfeel. Low on the bitterness, I get some semi sweet corn-like thing here. Its malty and a bit floral. Really easy drinking and not bad. 21.07.2012

tarkus (1) - USA - MAR 13, 2017 does not count
Self described as a hybrid marriage of Helles and Pilsner, this beer is similar to a German/Bavarian lager although not directly on style. The beer contains a noticeable nose and characteristic flavor of DMS, and lacks somewhat that Germanic malt seriousness that comes only from the painstaking labor of full decoction mashing. Lightly hopped, but adequate. Nonetheless, Id say this beer is approachable, reasonably flavorful and frankly, better than most of the "stadium beers" that others seem to have compared it to. It is light colored, almost straw-pale (but duh, "helles" means light) as a 100% pilsner malt beer coming in at 4.6% abv. Trying to stay objective here, but its not bad.

Svesse (8357) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
(Draught at Kings Arms, Bethnal Green, London, 25 Nov 2016) Pale golden colour with creamy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, cereal and hay. Malty taste with bread, grass, cereal, some vanilla and a gentle grassy bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well made, but a bit generic. Enjoyable.

Tasted like a lager of old. Nothing about it interesting or flavourful. I guess chilled on a summer day it would be next best to water. Otherwise. Nah.
